Now after receiving criticism and backlashes, Mukesh put up a clarification on her Instagram page along with the viral interview. He said that he is not against the working women and the video itself is proof.
Mukesh Khanna wrote, "I am not against Women Working. As I said let me show you my full interview taken by someone from which this “Vivadit Bayan” has been taken to malign me that I mean “ This” which I don’t mean. I was just commenting on how #MeToo can happen. You can see yourself in this interview how I respect women."
Check it out below:
Mukesh had said, "Aurat ka kaam hai Ghar sambhalna, jo Maaf Karna Mein Kabhi Kabhi bol bhi jata hoon (The job of a woman is to take care of the house). Problem Kaha se shuru hui hai #MeToo ki jab aurato ne Bhi kaam Karna shuru Kar Diya (The problem of #MeToo began when women started working). Aaj aurat, mard ke Saath kandhe se kandha milane ki baat karti hai (Today, women talk about walking shoulder-to-shoulder with men)."
Khanna added, "Log women’s liberation ki baat karenge, lekin main aapko bata doon, problem yahin se shuru hoti hai (People talk about women’s liberation, but let me tell you that where the problem begins). Sabse pehla jo member suffer Karta hai Woh Ghar ka bachcha suffer Karta hai, jisko maa nahi milti (The first person who suffers is the child because he doesn’t have a mother taking care of him at home). Aaya Ke Saath baith Kar Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu dekh Raha Hota hai (He sits and watches TV with his nanny all day). Jab se shuruat hui, tab se yeh Bhi shuruat hui ke main bhi wohi karungi jo mard Karta hai. Nahi, mard mard hai aurat aurat hai (It all began when women started saying that they want to do what men do. No, a man is a man and a woman is a woman)."
